i lost count of how many times you’ve woken up tonight screaming crying after the 6th time. not sure what’s wrong but i sure am tired.
you’ve been grumpy alllllllll day with me mi-mi! one minute you’re fine, next you’re a basket case. not eating or sleeping right. i’m going to call the dr tomorrow – it’s possible you have another ear infection. or maybe it’s teeth again. all i know is, lately you’ve been going down to bed fine and only getting up once or twice until get-up time. this is so unlike you. i hope it’s nothing serious.
on a positive note (what i’ve been wanting to type all night!): you kissed me for real today. puckered up those lips (similar to the look you give when you’re being ornery) and leaned in for a nice kiss on the lips. very nice. 😀 and you repeated it when asked several times in a row. yay!
you ate chicken nuggets for lunch and dinner and loved them! what a big boy!!! didn’t eat much of anything else, but at least something was in your tummy.
you are so big-big and still so much a little baby. you are my big-big baby. i suppose i wouldn’t want it any other way, would i??
i love you so much, my sweet little man. even when you drive me nuts, i still love you. i wish i could always make everything better for you. that you wouldn’t have to be upset or hurt or cry at all. i do my best, but sometimes things are beyond my control. i pray for you so many times a day, my little son. i love you with all my heart. you ARE my heart.
love,
your mama

    Julia has been waking up a few times a night lately too, driving me nuts!!! Maybe it is just the age? I don’t remember what Jon was like at 10-11 months, but he was in general a much easier baby! Hope you get some sleep tonight. 🙂

    Oh, poor Jeremiah! I hope, hope, hope he doesn’t have another ear infection, as that would be too unfair after having surgery for tubes.

    Yay for the first kiss!!!!

    Love,
    Julie

    Okay, the ear infection monster needs to stay away from Jeremiah
    Okay, the ear infection monster needs to stay away from Jeremiah and me! The one I had this summer caused me to miss a whole week of work… I’ll spare the details, but it was baaaaaahaaaaad.
    Well, we all know our God is a whole lot bigger than an ear infection!

    Get to feeling better Jeremiah.
